Six years ago today, my last day of being an Ives, Brett & I voted in the Iowa caucuses after our rehearsal dinner. All week I have been feverishly tracking the status of my Agricola order, and today I packaged a belated birthday present for my mother while Norah dressed up as Saint Lucia (complete with a crown of battery operated tea lights) and Brett thawed our frozen pipe until the mailman FINALLY came at 4:29 PM! Kristen and Becky were able to join us for two exhilarating games, although Brett had to leave after the first game for his mandatory overtime night shift. Tomorrow we embark on our Seventh* year of marriage!
*’tis our sixth anniversary, completing our sixth year.
